WRITE LOG REPLY

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Apr 10, 2008
Hi,

I'm using the option REPLY on the WRITE LOG command in cobol for the
first time. What I want to do is send a message to the console, and I
want to make sure that the operator sees the message. So this is my
command:


WRITE LOG MESSAGE ID 9585020
REPLY INTO WS-REPLY-FIELD MAX LENGTH 10.

The message sent to the console is basically PBM WITH xxxx, ENTER Y TO
CONTINUE. I don't really care what the operator replies. I just want
them to be forced to reply to make sure they see the message. (of
course, I know that doesn't guarantee they will act on the message, but
that is a different topic!)

Anyway, when we first tried it out, the message was being scrolled off
the screen. Dave Embury helped me out, and by changing the route code
and description code on the message, the message is now highlighted and
non-scrollable. However, we can't figure out how to get the reply back
to the program. The message showing up in the MVS LOG is:

@IDMS DC958502 V11 REPLY nn PBM WITH ***, ENTER Y TO CONTINUE

The nn after REPLY is a sequential number generated by IDMS. The
operators have tried R nn,Y, and of course, that doesn't work, they get
REPLY nn NOT OUTSTANDING. If the operator issues R mm, Y (where mm is
the outstanding reply number for the CV), we get the message T1 OPERATOR
COMMAND NOT RECOGNIZED. In fact, when they issue the operator command
D R,R to get all outstanding replies, we don't get an outstanding reply
for my message.

I'm about to open a problem with CA, but before doing so, I'm just
wondering if anyone out there has used the REPLY parm on the WRITE LOG
command? Any ideas, on how to get the answer back to my program?

Thank you,
Laura Rochon

"Hi Rob,

Yes, I've been getting this too, usually exiting the browser and
starting over has worked for me.

Happy Friday,
